The Slabs

The Slabs led by Kyle Laval/Stephanie Wilson from Kansas City, Missouri

Tom & Josh's Orgasmic Slabs (The Slabs) was founded in 1996 by Josh Wilson and his cousin Tom Wilson. Tom & Josh decided to start competing at the 1996 American Royal where they received a 7th place honorable mention in chicken for their "Tommy Wings". Unfortunately, Tom passed away in January 1998.

Kyle Laval joined the Slabs in May of 1998. With the help of their family and friends the Slabs have prospered in competition. Stephanie's son, Brent Richardson, is the junior member of the team having won Grand Champion Kids Que in Laurie, MO, two years in a row, among other accomplishments.

In 2001, they won numerous top ten awards, but by winning the 2001 Johnson County Barbeque Championship in Warrensburg, MO, they were in the American Royal Invitational and had their names picked from the Jack Daniels World Invitational pool. At Jack Daniels, they received 1st place in the chicken category and 9th place overall. In 2002, numerous top ten awards were earned, Reserve Grand Champion honors at Lawrence, KS; Platte City, MO and Jamesport, MO. The Grand Champion win at the Paola Roots Fest in Paola, KS took the team to the American Royal Invitational and first alternate (and were able to compete!) for Jack Daniels 2002!
